This trip gave me a better appreciation of America.

next time you go there walk around the monuments at 12am-2am.... they're all open 24hrs... zero people... the best part are the rangers that man them... they know the nuances (strategic positioning of the monuments like how MLK faces jefferson) and the history.

at the jefferson monument the ranger had a personal story about him guiding around sarah palin... had my friend, wife and I in tears laughing... then he went into the nitty gritty history... damn jefferson was interesting.

Midnight would be fun. Didn't realize they were open 24 hours a day.

Canada > America is more difficult than you think. I've been here for a dozen years and barely understand the place. In fact, I've come to but one conclusion.

The trip changed that a little.

I'm afraid to ask what conclusion that would be.
What conclusion would that be?

Well, its not like i'm Ford Prefect or anything. And appreciate that I spend my time between NewYo, LosAnn, and I guess SanFo, so I've looked at the place with an amused curiosity. And as a political junkie I've stood in fascination at Bush v Gore, Bush v Kerry, Obama v McCain, and Obama v Romney wondering how on earth this is the best you can do.

But here goes: I understand why faith is so important in this country because it is a goddamn miracle you guys are still a super power.

SAN FRANCISCO — A year after passing an ordinance to gently regulate al fresco nudity — requiring that naturists place something between their seats and public seating — city officials are scheduled to vote Tuesday on whether to ban public nakedness outright.

Well, almost outright. This being San Francisco, there are exceptions:

The preschool set still could go diaper-less anywhere and everywhere. Fetishists could drop trou for a flogging during the annual Folsom Street Fair, billed as the world's largest leather fest.

The proposed ban would not stop the athletically inclined from jettisoning their shorts during the Bay to Breakers run — the historic, costume-optional race through this city's microclimates (chilly to chillier). And Dykes on Bikes could wear — or not — whatever they wished during the Pride Parade.
